I am a Vampire, and in my world that means long black hair, pale skin and bright blue eyes. I survive on blood and I can hear the thoughts of other Vampires in close proximity, if they send them to me, and I can send them mine. I move fast, faster than a human eye can track, and faster than a Werewolf can move which makes me a dangerous predator in their eyes. I am of a pack however, thanks to my mate.
You heard right PACK, I am a Vampire, but I am happily mated to an Alpha Werewolf, Tarquin. Its not exactly an accepted lifestyle, according to Vampires or Werewolves, or most any other creature out there, which explains how we ended up on trial for our lives at one point. Stupid Elves.
But that is in the past. I live with my mate outside of Portland Oregon and within way too close proximity to my obsessive ex lover, Paxton, whom my darling would really like to rip to pieces, if only I would let him.
I don't eat food, I don't go out in the sun, and I don't want dangerous humans to know about me. If you are reading this, and you aren't of the immortal breed, I will find you and you will no longer breathe on this earth. I don't kill to feed, it isn't necessary, but I will kill to protect my family and the secret of our existence. Some Vampires do kill for fun, they thrive on the fear they induce in their prey and glory in the death they bring to those lesser beings who are so fragile and stupid. But that is mostly the older generation, and frowned upon officially by all. I drink mostly from my mate, during sex, but also pre-packaged blood delivered by a local source. If I were to only ingest the blood of my mate I would risk becoming pregnant with his child again, not something I am want to do.
I am a loving mother and wife, I am fiercely protective of what is mine, and I will go out and take whatever it is I want. Vampires, in general, are a very selfish breed, we don't like groups we don't need constant contact from others, other than our mate of course, that is a kind of contact we would kill for. The Internet has been such a blessing to the Vampire breed, we can keep in contact, without actually making an effort to be around each other.
Unfortunately my mate is a Werewolf, a very group oriented breed and needs to be a part of a pack to survive. And so I accept that they invade my home every full moon and on Holidays, but my mate has accepted that we will never be a household full of them. Not that any of them really enjoy my company anyhow, they would rip me apart if they could justify it to their Alpha.
A peace of sorts has been reached among us all, and for two such volatile creatures that is an amazing thing.
I will blog here every Monday as a way of keeping touch with my fellow Vampires, keep them apprised of events as they unfold down here, especially considering the newly developing Council of Immortals. This is something that will mean a change for every immortal out there, not all of whom will take kindly to the idea. And with my daughter a seated member, being the only of her species, I have taken a very close interest in it.
